Two Other Bikers Arrested in SUV Brawl

Posted: Updated:
New York, New York (My9NJ) -

Passaic resident Christopher Cruz is one of the men involved in the extremely controversial biker brawl that took place on the West Side Highway where a man in an SUV was brutally beaten after allegedly rear-ending and running over a motorcyclist who was riding amongst a group of bikers.

Cruz is believed to have allegedly started the brawl in the middle of the highway and was in court this week for a hearing on the incident. While Cruz refused to talk to the media, his Attorney H. Benjamin Perez was confident to discuss his client’s innocence. He explained that his client didn’t commit any crime and that he has been suffering from this arrest.

“My client never left the scene. My client went to the hospital from the scene because he was run over. He didn’t make it to Washington Heights, he never chased after this man. He never did anything at all.” Perez said.

While Cruz has already been arrested and charged, there are two other bikers who turned themselves in: Reginald Chance and Robert Simms. Chance allegedly took off his helmet and used it as a weapon to break the driver’s window and Simms allegedly pulled the driver out of the SUV and beat him up.

This incident is extremely controversial because in the end the SUV driver ran over a biker and paralyzed him making many feel that he shouldn’t get off completely without any penalty.
